Pasini Express recipe

"I am a Martini cocktail enthusiast and I invented this variation on the classic dry Martini a few years ago. We began to drink it in the fashionable bars of Bologna, Italy; now, upon request, it can be mixed and served at the 'Inde Palais' cafe, Via dei Musei, Bologna." Dr. Stefano Pasini.
Absolut 50° 'Red' Vodka must come straight out of a very cold freezer, the cocktail glass must be quite large and possibly extremely cold as well. Put a splash of Extra Dry Martini in the glass, shake it so to cover the walls of the glass with a film of vermouth and throw away what remains at the bottom of the glass, Pour 3 oz of Red Absolut vodka in the glass. Grind black pepper on the surface of the cocktail using an electric Peugeot mill, garnish with a Castelmadama olive but don't put any lemon whatsoever, for God's sake!
A popular variation is the substitution of the strong 50° Red Absolut with the more tolerable green Moskovskaya or, for the luxury-oriented, straight Belvedere.
